I have both on iPhone and iPad and both are perfectly stable and work easily

My preferred default App is Pizzey. As well as the standard excellent
illustrations from the book it usually has additional images, often (always?)

of calls / songs for many of the species. I also suspect that there are more
songs of sub-species on Pizzey, but you would need confirmation of this.
